Risk

There is rarely a single root cause of fraud, but being aware of some of the common fraud schemes, like improper revenue recognition, reserves manipulation, inventory misstatement, and loan impairment deferral, can help organizations deter and detect fraud more readily.

While company management is responsible for assessing fraud risk and establishing controls, other members of the supply chain, like internal auditors, can play an important role in evaluating management’s measures to reduce the risk of fraud, too.

It is also essential to look beyond traditional approaches; for example, what are the potential implications for fraud risk when it comes to the use of non-GAAP measures? How can data analytics and technology support our efforts to combat risk?

The Anti-Fraud Collaboration examines higher-risk areas that are susceptible to fraud and shares insights into what financial reporting supply chain stakeholders can do to identify and mitigate these types of fraud risks more effectively.

The resources below explore multiple angles of fraud risk.
